Nintendo has announced its PAX Prime line-up, which includes a speaker session from The Wonderful 101′s Hideki Kamiya, hands-on opportunities with Pokemon X & Y, and more.

In a press release from Nintendo, Kamiya’s speaker session was confirmed for the Pegasus Theater in the Sheraton Seattle Hotel at 5 pm on Sunday September 1, where he’ll give insight into the game’s conception and development.

Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will be playable in Nintendo’s Pokémon Gaming Lounge on the second floor of the Washington State Convention Center. It’s the first public hands-on of the game in North America.

The Legend of Zelda lounge will house The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD on Wii U and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds on 3DS. Attendees can take part in a Wind Waker “Treasure Quest” challenge that tasks them with completing four quests around the convention centre. Finish them all and you get a Zelda t-shirt for your trouble.

Other playable games include Super Mario 3D World, Bayonetta 2, Sonic Lost World , Rayman Legends, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Pikmin 3, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, Scribblenauts Unmasked, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Q.U.B.E. Director’s Cut, Shovel Knight, Armillo, A World of Keflings, Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, Retro City Rampage and a slew of MiiPlaza titles.

    Look at that lineup. Excites me so much more than anything ps4nextbox. Cannot wait for ww hd either. Sure it is a remake but it is a remake of one of my favourite games. It is pure joy to play it. It puts me in a good mood. Great timing and thx in advance nintendo.

    @1 – Yeah it’s a very strong line-up for sure.

    Good to see Shantae listed too as it must mean it’s not too far off a release eh!?!
